Sadly Sheilagh’s condition has deteriorated significantly. She has been moved to a hospice in the anticipation of the end of her life. She is surrounded by her family and friends who are giving her love and joy.

Sheilagh has appreciated your love and discretion in how you have respected and protected her space over this year past. She hopes that you will keep up your good work by continuing to respect her and her daughters’ space and privacy. She has spoken warmly of all of you and loves you for this. Your love and support have meant everything to her and she is and remains grateful.

Please do not leave flowers or other objects by the house or on the lawn. If you wish to write a letter or a card – there is white bench on the porch where you can leave them. Sheilagh and her girls would love to read about your love and your experiences with Sheilagh. A donation to the Anglican Parish of Lloydtown would not go amiss either.

If you wish to celebrate Sheilagh in a way she would like: as you drive by the house honk your horn or, if you are on a motorbike, race your engine a bit (Not too late at night – please!). She loves these signs of support.

  1. Love you, may your new journey be filled with as much love as you had here. You will be with the Father and he will heal you as you transition. Love to the girls. You are amazing, just like your Mama Bear. Heavy heart, that we will not see your beautiful face, smile and feel your magnificent heart.

  2. I will write dear Bernie!
    I will email my letter and ask someone to print for me! Sheilagh knows I am on Big Rideau Lake right now for my daughter Lisa,’s 50th. Our whole family love Sheilagh so much and our hearts are full for her and Madeleine and Sarah, your Mom and your siblings!

  3. Sheilagh, we only met face to face once. I knew you had to be “some awesome” because I know your girls well. Words cannot express the confidence and trust you had in me to bring words to your congregations. Having lunch and chatting with you, Maddie and Sarah has stayed with me all year. It was that next week that you found out what was next on your path. I am so glad we had the chance to connect on Indigenous Peoples Day! I will remember that for a long time. You have walked across this river but we know your Spirit still walks with us. You helped raise beautiful young women. I want you to know, and I know you do, that we will be here to journey with them. Travel well, my friend, travel well! HUGS!
